About us

Groundwork works across the UK helping communities find practical solutions to the challenges they face. We provide training and create jobs, reduce energy use and waste, re-connect people with nature and transform whole neighbourhoods. Step by step we’ll go on changing places and changing lives until everywhere is vibrant and green, every community is strong enough to shape its own destiny and everyone can reach their potential.

About the role

Groundwork has an exciting opportunity within our Project Team for a Home Energy Advisor (Green Doctor). Our Green Doctor will support those in need across the region, engaging and offering practical support to people most at risk of fuel poverty, helping to make their homes more environmentally friendly and cheaper to run.

We are seeking someone who is a confident communicator who will engage with the community to deliver informal training and encouraging referrals to the Green Doctor programme.

About you

This role requires a dynamic and dedicated person who can think on their feet, someone with a caring nature who has a strong desire for helping people and is passionate about making a difference. You will need to be highly organised and adaptable as no two days will be the same.

You will undertake assessments, fit practical energy saving measures and then offer energy saving advice to residents.

It’s a unique and challenging role that gives you the chance to make a difference to people’s lives every day.

Appropriate qualifications in energy efficiency would be useful but not vital as we will provide full in-job training for the successful candidates.

Closing date: We are recruiting on a rolling basis with applications closing at midnight on Sunday 30th June 2024

This role is subject to an Enhanced Disclosure endorsed by the Disclosure and Barring Service.
